Two new behind-the-scenes image from IT have surfaced online.
One takes place in the set built for Derry's extensive, underground sewer system. This is where Pennywise the Clown likes to lay in wait, making it the perfect place of concealment for his evil purposes. In the image itself (via HH), we see three members of The Losers' Club — jokester Richie Tozier (Finn Wolfhard), hypochondriac Eddie Kaspbrak (Jack Dylan Grazer), and clean-freak Stanley Uris (Wyatt Oleff) — standing off to the side. On the screen, an unidentifiable member of the club (maybe Sophia Lillis' Beverly Marsh?) is being choked by Pennywise, whose mouth is open wide and eyes rolled back. Creepy.
Aside from the murderous clown, The Loser's Club will also have to deal with another threat: Bowers Gang. The new second image (via Liljas Library) below features a new look at the gang of high school bullies who terrorize the young protagonists. Victor "Vic" Criss (Logan Thompson), Henry Bowers (Nicholas Hamilton) and Reginald "Belch" Huggins (Jake Sim) lean up against the trunk of a Trans Am while they enjoy a frozen snack.

New Line Cinema’s horror thriller IT, directed by Andrés Muschietti (Mama), is based on the hugely popular Stephen King novel of the same name, which has been terrifying readers for decades.
When children begin to disappear in the town of Derry, Maine, a group of young kids is faced with their biggest fears when they square off against an evil clown named Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries.
IT stars Bill Skarsgård (Allegiant, TV’s Hemlock Grove) as the story’s central villain, Pennywise. An ensemble of young actors also star in the film, including Jaeden Lieberher (Midnight Special), Jeremy Ray Taylor (Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip), Sophia Lillis (37), Finn Wolfhard (TV’s Stranger Things), Wyatt Oleff (Guardians of the Galaxy), Chosen Jacobs (upcoming Cops and Robbers), Jack Dylan Grazer (Tales of Halloween) and Nicholas Hamilton (Captain Fantastic).
